These days, what party isn’t complete without some paper straws? Well, that’s certainly how I felt when I was prepping for last week’s Knit in Public Workshop for Raglan St Wears! I know, I know, they’re actually not very good as straws and always end up going soggy. But they’re just so dang cute I couldn’t resists! So I decided to jazz them up a bit with some washi to make them that little bit extra special. This little DIY is inspired by one of the most popular on my blog – my washi tape paperclip flags, and is so very quick and easy! So let’s get started on these DIY washi tape paper straws!
First, you’ll need:
– Paper straws (grab some from any party supply shop!)
– Washi tape
Start by sticking a strip of washi around a straw. Make sure to line up the edges!
Then take your scissors and cut the washi into a cute flag shape. Combining different shapes and patterns can look extra cute so don’t be afraid to mix it up!
And you’re done! It’s literally that easy and such a fab way to work through your washi stash. Plus, all your guest will be able to recognise their drinks based on the flags. No more orphan cups!
So for you next event, add a little washi cuteness with these straws! They’re just adorable enough they’ll (almost!) make up for the mouthful of sog that paper straws usually end up as. Ah well, anything for cuteness right?
